Know How:

I have experience with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and Medium Format cameras. I have extensive lighting knowledge both in the studio as well as on location.
Lighting: Profoto, Apurture, Elinchrom, Broncolor, Flashpoint/Godox, speed lights, Arri, HMI lights and kino flo among others.

I have worked full time as a Photographer,

I'm always willing to lend a hand with whatever is needed on set if it doesn't negatively affect my current position. I've also driven my fair share of grip trucks/vans and have relationships with the local rental houses.
